What's going on in the BBC newsrooms?

Sometimes I wonder what on earth goes on in the newsrooms of the BBC.

At a time when great efforts are successfully being made to portray Northern Ireland in a positive light, the BBC national news states that the Orange Order march through Ardoyne in Belfast descended into violence.

At the same time, the local BBC Northern Ireland news programme states that the very same Orange Order march passed off peacefully.

Why the difference in reporting? I'm sure the BBC Northern Ireland newsroom informed the national news programme of what went on in Ardoyne.

So, either by accident or design, there appears to be potentially harmful misinformation being relayed to the rest of the UK about Orange Orange marches.
